Gustavo Sclocchi Award

The Gustavo Sclocchi Award is a cooperation between EAGE, SPE (Society of Petroleum Engineers – Italian Section), and Assomineraria (Italian Petroleum and Mining Industry Association – Hydrocarbon and Geothermal Resources Sector).

The awards are for the best theses in geosciences and petroleum engineering presented by any university and diploma graduates, and Ph.D. students from Italian universities, and Italian nationals who have graduated abroad. 

The awards started in 1993 and since 2001 have been associated with the late Gustavo Sclocchi, an Eni manager, who was the main promoter of the event and award series. Over the last 26 years, 785 theses have been submitted out of which 145 have won awards. 

The 29th  Sclocchi Award ceremony

The 30th Sclocchi Awards is open for submissions, all information for applications is here.

Motivated candidates shall apply by February 28th, 2023.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
